It’s almost Christmas, and again, it’s a time of giving and of making our friends and happy. But do you have any ideas what to buy for friends who are math teachers, mathematicians, and enthusiasts? Below are 8 gift ideas.

**1.) Coffee Mug**

Many math teachers and math enthusiasts love to drink coffee. Paul Erdos once said that a mathematician is a machine for turning coffee into theorems. This mug will be perfect.

**2.) Abacus Keychain**

Calculations can be done using calculators. Or, using an abacus.

Let your math friends keep track of time with this geeky wall clock.

**4.) The Art of Problem Solving, Vol. 1: The Basics**

If your friend loves problem solving, here’s one of the best books that you can give them. I have personally read this book and I think it’s a very good resource for problem solving. For more advanced problem solvers, you can also buy **The Art of Problem Solving, Vol. 2: And Beyond**.

This Compass and Geometry Kit contains a number of Geometry tools. Included in the kit are compass, straightedge, pencil, eraser, and sharpener.

**6.) Fibonacci Spiral Necklace Pendant**

If your friends love necklaces, give them this Fibonacci necklace pendant.

**7.) Pie PI Tie Clip**

Make your teacher look geeky and elegant in this tie clip.

**8.) Math T-shirt **

Although mathematicians are not always right, this shirt is.

That’s all. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.
